Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Lincoln LS Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 122011

LS 8-cyl

  • 76,000 miles


Took my 2002 Lincoln into dealer to see why I was smelling hot engine oil they told me the valve cover gaskets leak on both sides of engine. Asked why both the service traction control light and ABS light and occasionally brake like stay on while operating the car, was told the sensor was bad and needed replaced. Upon inspection they found the transmission cooling line was leaking. My car has only approx. 80,000 miles on it. I feel that the leaking oil could cause a fire due to the gaskets leaking and what could happen if the transmission oil dumped while operating, could any of these problems cause a serious accident while operating on public highways or freeways.
